SpaceX plans Starlink phone service, emergency backup, and low-income access

Providing broadband throughout Western North Carolina will require the consideration of viable options.

SpaceX is now planning:

  • Phone service
  • Emergency backup
  • Low-income access

Can it deliver these services in addition to acceptable broadband?

The WNC Broadband Project Team is receptive to feedback from any WNC SpaceX user. Please email with your purchase feedback of SpaceX Starlink services with information about what community your dish resides.
